economy through the gulf. melissa: what do you think is the appropriate response? because we were talking on the show yesterday about how sanctions it seems like are not necessarily working because we highlight ad company that is going ahead and buying iranian oil and is reportedly then selling it to china? because seems like the sanctions are not necessarily that effective. >> for a simple reason, melissa that not all of those who should be putting sanctions are putting sanctions. iran is trading with everybody else than the coalition that is putting sanctions. sanctions alone won't work. they are necessary but, the only thing we need to do. number two, you have the military capacity strike. that is only when we are sure that the iranians crossed that red line. third and most important i guess is work with the iranian opposition, with iranian students and women and minorities those who took to the streets in tehran remember in june 2009? they were very close shaking up the foundation for the regime. unfortunately washington did not seize the moment there. melissa: walid, thank you very m

under some of the strongest sanctions today. oil exports have been correct. the iranian economy has been hit hard. it does have an effect on the economy. we must face the truth. sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. [applause] red lines do not lead to war. they prevent war. look at nato's charter. it made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all. red lines have helped keep the peace in europe for nearly half a century. and help preserve the peace for decades. it is the failure to place red lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they thre

economy has not seen disruptions like some years ago. why? 1989, now each year china has many law school students. that is faster than united states, for better or for worse. [laughter] their commercializing the media. none of them existed in 1989 in china. this provided a stabilizing force for a peaceful transition. the party needs to transform itself before it is too late. there is a serious discussion among social groups talking about legitimacy of the chinese communist party. how could it be possible? because his ambition will never stop. that is an important lesson. this is a critical moment china is experiencing at this conjunction of history. so, in a way, to answer your question, the leadership, in many ways they also sense the of the vulnerability. but it is not clear whether they will really transform the party because it is a very complicated process. there are ethnic issues. again, all of these issues will resurge, plus, the economy, slowed down. that as a result of the political problems and a further revealed the fundamental problems in the system, monopoly, corruption, etc

the economy of iran. he said they've not stopped in deterring the nuclear program that that country is pursuing. he spent much of the speech setting the stage, talking about iranian aggression saying this is what we've seen in iran where they've turned on their own people without a nuclear weapon. what can the world expect if iran is able to obtain a nuclear weapon? an interesting note. he said in his remarks the middle east, europe and america would not be safe. >> yes. this presupposes that iran is not a rational actor or is sometimes described as death call. it's not clear. we've gone through this. i don't know if you were in the late 1990s and early 2000s we went through the same rhetoric with north korea. it it was unthinkable. the world would go through no effort and they couldn't trust them with a bomb, south korea could be destroyed although the touch the button. president clinton said north korea will never use that bomb, because if they do, it will be the end of north korea. netanyahu is clear about the repur repercussions would be for iran if it continues to pursue enrich

elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward allies. we pointed out that when he made those kinds of statements that suggested the u.s. is not completely above reproach, he usually balance it with praise for things the country had done right. all that -- that is in a long tradition of presidents acknowledging past imperfections. these cannot by any normal dictionaries amount to apologies. either formal or informal. again, last month, when romney accepted his party's nomination, he repeated the assertion that obama had begun his presidency with an apology tour, and obama had confessed the u.s. had "dictated to other nations." that fact check story went into greater detail, pointing out that obama's trips to e

court, because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play among undecided voters could but it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do
